Film producers have acquired Stephenie’s ‘The Host’

TheHost

Variety is reporting that film producers have pooled their money and purchased the rights to Stephenie Meyer’s book The Host.

Producers Nick Wechsler, Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz have used their own money to acquire screen rights to “The Host,” the first adult novel written by Stephenie Meyer, author of the “Twilight” series.

Andrew Niccol will write the script and direct.

Meyer’s novel is a love story set in the near future on Earth, which has been assimilated by an alien species of benevolent parasites that call themselves “Souls.” One such soul, the Wanderer, is fused with a dying human named Melanie Stryder, in an attempt to locate the last pocket of surviving humans on Earth.

“We wanted Stephenie to be involved in the adaptation and have her endorse and be part of the creative decisions,” Wechsler said. “Twilight” has “proven she knows more about what works than most.”

Have you guys read The Host? Are you interested in seeing her non-Twilight book made into a film?

  • klcjns

    I am a HUUUUGGEE fan of the Host and I would love to see it played out on screen like i see it in my mind.. but..(and i really hope not) i'm afraid they will ruin it like they ruined the first twilight movie (still hoping the second and third ones are better)

    Good book. If they do the movie right, it should be good too. Anything Stephenie Meyer writes is awesome. Does anyone know if she writing anything new? And what about Midnight Sun does anyone know if she is going to finish that one?

    I can't wait!!!! I loved this book and my first thought when I finished reading it was that it should be made into a movie. Just hope they do it right.

  • gubka

    The book is perfect, I cant wait a movie!!!

  • aleatoire

    ….if it's done right, it'll be great. If not, it'll be an “OMG-why-did-they-make-another-movie-of-something-of-SMeyer's???”

  • teamjasper!

    humm… well the host is an AMAZING book but I'm not sure how it will play out as a movie. Its more physiological than physical and visual like a movie needs to be. Plus, there are two people in one body which works in the book because the author can tell what each of them are thinking. How will they put that into a movie without it seeming cheesy?

    I'm wondering if it's the same company that got twilight. Did a legit film company get the host, or some random people?

    I would love for her to write a sequel to the host, not sure if it will be a GOOD movie, but (like twilight) it will still be a movie i'll see because I loved the book.

  • mon

    omg i loved it!!! i so hope they do this and they do it right!!

  • Name

    OMG im sooooo excited!!! I jst finished reading the host last nite nd the 1st thing i thought was that im sooooo depro that its over nd the 2nd thing i thought was that it should be made into a movie! It was a perfect book! I jst hope that the movie is jst as perfect otherwise they'll jst ruin the whole book. BTW SMeyer has decided that shes gonna continue writing Midnight Sun but there is no deadline so we'll jst hafta be patient- not one of my strong points! haha

  • kathyblack

    Finally!!!! can't wait!!!!! love love love the host!!!!! S.Meyer is the best!!!! twilight and the host are the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • chantelro

    absolutely it was a great book! and it will be a great movie if they don't screw it up.

  • CrazyNonStrikesAgain

    OMG
    WOW!
    THAT'S ALL I CAN SAY

    I think that its a good idea to do a film of the host. My only concern with this would be that the film would be quite short, due to the lagging middle of the novel in which not a whole lot of significant events happened. If they do do an adaptation of the book, I think there will need to be extra scenes and events added to make the film more exciting, other wise this is an awesome idea!!

    i couldn't actually get it to the book!! but i think the film could be good. love twilight tho x

  • kate_cullen

    Hey,

    I think Midnight Sun is on the back burner for the moment but hopefully in the near future!

  • MADDYBOOTS

    THE WAS AN…..OK BOOK I COULDNT REALLY GET INTO IT. AND I DONT KNOW HOW IT WOULD BE AS A MOVIE?………..

  • aneaya83

    agree with you 100%

  • sunnyy

    How do you know she's decided to finish midnight sun?? ohmy gosh! i really really hope she does!!

  • wesrider

    i'm a bit wary of this one too……i dont see how it can be done and still play out as i read it. i might be fun to see how it goes tho. i dont have to watch it more than once if its sucks. a sequel to the host would be awesome. i wonder what steph's been doing since BD came out??

  • me

    The host was so so much better. You felt like the people were real, rather than fairy tale happy. And the love is more realistic. they actually had to work for it, rather than have it put on a plate for them.

    I'm about two thirds of the way through 'The Host' and, after a slow start , am really enjoying it. It's such a beautiful love story and I've cried several times while reading it. I hope they can turn it into a great movie, because it's a great storyline. We'll just have to wait and see!

    I hope she finishes midnight sun too, but I don't particularly want it made into a movie. I think that would be too much.

    The Host was an amazing book, I really enjoyed it and for AGES I was waiting and hoping that it would be made into a movie. I cant wait!
    Although its not as good as the Twilight Saga, it was a good book and it was so interesting that I read it in less than a day.
    If you havent read it I recomend it.

    (sounds just like a review lol, but it was a good book)
